Times of Perception Exhibition Time: 11:00am - 7:00pm Locations: Manning Academic Center - Owings Mills Campus - North Details:
2019 marks the 75th anniversary of American internment of Japanese and Japanese-Americans during WWII. Two years ago, the Trump administration issued Executive Order 13769, commonly known as the Muslim Ban.

The body that is too fat, too sick, too Black, too foreign, too female, too queer, too old...

Exhibition: April 27 - September 21, 2019, Art Gallery, Theatre Building, Greenspring Campus
Reception: April 29, 2019, 5:00 - 7:00 p.m., Inscape Theatre Lobby, Greenspring Campus
Unruly Bodies Artist Talk Time: 5:00pm - 7:00pm Locations: Art Gallery - Greenspring Campus Details: The body that is too fat, too sick, too Black, too foreign, too femme, too queer, too old...
One year ago, Roxane Gay asked 24 writers to consider what it means to live in an unruly body. The prompt for Medium was deceptively simple, personal but universal, and yielded beautiful narratives.
Now, nine artists probe the themes of Gay’s Unruly Bodies magazine for an exhibition of the same name. What does it mean to move through the world in a body that contradicts societal norms? What does it mean to struggle against, come to terms with, or assert our physicality? How can we claim the space that we deserve?
Exhibition: April 27–September 21, 2019
Artists’ Talk: September 9, 2019, 5–7 PM
Greenspring Art Gallery, Stevenson University, Stevenson, MD
